I've been contacting a few agents to compare them, the two I've heard back from say we shouldn't have any trouble qualifying for the permanent skilled visa, one (workpermit.com) even offered no win no fee so I'd reckon they were pretty certain! Anyway I'm currently at the stage of emailing my other halfs CV listing his 24 years in carpentry and waiting for some quotes.
Are there any really awful agents out there who you would advise us to steer clear of? I'm waiting to hear back from go matilda as well before I make a choice, all seem to be around the same price one includes the cost of the visa and the other doesn't. They reckon about 7-8 months to sort it out and get visas, is that a realistic time frame?
Any advice would be great!
